Abstract
The patient admitted with the signs and symptoms of deep venous thrombosis (DVT) was diagnosed and hospitalized for inferior vena cava (IVC) filter implantation preceding a pharmaco-mechanical thrombolysis. Despite the lack of a preoperative history and a radiological finding resembling an IVC filter, intraoperative fluoroscopy revealed a previously implanted permanent device.
The present case is showing that some IVC filters may be hard to be visualized preoperatively in the roentgenogram.

Key words: Venous thrombosis; inferior vena cava; vena cava filters
